The: The main question one needs to know is why have you been recommended to have your tonsils removed? Recurrent tonsillitis is the main reason for recommending tonsillectomy. Other reasons are tonsillar enlargement leading to airway obstruction and a mass presenting in the tonsil where malignancy may be of concern. An online evaluation is most difficult. While it can guess with regards to symptoms and findings, nothing beats a physical examination by your ENT doctor. Best of luck. ...Read more

Family & ENT doctor can't figure out what's wrong & symptoms are getting worse. What do I do!?

Doc, may I know how much the cost for visit a ENT doctor without insurance? Please

If you are working you or your employer are required by law to obtain health Insurance. If you're not working then you probably qualify for government subsidized insurance at no cost. You never just need one visit to a doctor. Trying to pay out of pocket for medical care will break you. ...Read more

As an ENT doctor, what's the most common type of inappropriate referral you see from general practitioners?

As an ENT doctor, what's the most common type of inappropriate referral you see from general practitioners?

Not inappropriate: Referrals are made when your primary doctor is not sure what the problem is or they are unfamiliar with the best forms of treatment. It's quite appropriate to send these patients to someone specialized in fields like ent. Along those lines, it's very unusual to receive a truly inappropriate referral.

If ENT doctor says that I have a hearing lose but yet I can hear better now than I did during the exam. Is it normal for my hearing go bak n forth?

What did u say?: O just kidding! It's possible that hearing can wax and wane. Ear wax once cleared naturally will improve hearing. Or it could be selective hearing - you're oblivious to what your spouse is telling you (pun intended). Hearing loss from nerve damage is usually steady and worsening and not improving. Ask your ENT dr for an explanation. Best wishes! ...Read more

Sir I consulted for second opinion and now the other ENT doctor has asked me not to opt for surgery insted he prescribed me with medicines for 45 days?

Reasonable: Treatment with antibiotics is the standard first-line treatment for patients with sinusitis. Amox-clav or Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) (what you were given) for 2-3 weeks is an ideal first option. Other possible medications could be oral steroids, with allergy medication/sprays as and adjunct. Surgery is reserved for recalcitrant disease that does not reposed to multiple antibiotic courses. Follow up is needed. ...Read more
